Interactive GIA Education Presentation
Diamonds that are absolutely clear are very rare, the most sought-after and therefore the most expensive. But most diamonds have inclusions — scratches, trace minerals or other tiny characteristics that can detract from the pure beauty of the diamond. The GIA, AGS and IGI labs use a detailed system of rules and standards to summarize, note and mark the number, location, size, and type of inclusions present in a diamond.

FL, IF: Flawless, Internally Flawless: No internal or external flaws. Internally Flawless: No internal flaws. Very rare and beautiful diamonds.

VS1, VS2: Very Slightly Included: Inclusions are not typically visible to the unaided eye. Less expensive than the VVS1 or VVS2 grades.
SI1, SI2, SI3: Slightly Included: Inclusions are visible under 10x magnification, and may be visible with the unaided eye. A good diamond value. if you select a diamond from this category please contact us to ensure the diamond is eye clean.

I1, I2, I3: Included: MDC does not carry diamonds of I-grade clarity.
Which Clarity Grade Is Best?
We recommend that you select an "eye-clean" diamond — one that has no inclusions visible to the unaided eye. An excellent value, diamonds of this clarity are much less expensive than IF or FL grade diamonds and typically do not contain visible inclusions that detract from the beauty of the diamond. If you're considering an SI grade diamond, call to speak to a diamond and jewelry consultant who will review the diamond to ensure the inclusions are not visible with the unaided eye. But, if you'd rather not compromise on clarity yet are budget conscious, choose a diamond with a good cut and H or lower color.
